EMRA*Cast host Dr. Shreyans Sanghvi takes a deep dive on the history, current practice, and future direction of cardiac arrest management and advanced resuscitation medicine with research pioneers Dr. Lance Becker and Dr. Sam Parnia.
Each year hundreds of thousands of Americans suffer from cardiac arrest out of the hospital. CPR has been a core tenet in the rescue algorithm for patients in cardiac arrest, but how do we transform this age-old treatment with today's advances in technology, and to where do we turn when CPR alone is ineffective?
Dr. Lance Becker, chair of Emergency Medicine at Northwell Health North Shore - LIJ, and Dr. Sam Parnia, director of Critical Care Research at NYU Langone Medical Center, discuss lessons they've learned along the way dedicating their lives to the research and treatment of patients in cardiac arrest.
